This article focuses on the reception in Jewish tradition of the story of Joseph’s temptation by Potiphar’s wife (Gen. 39:1-20). Firstly, the meanings of the Hebrew term and its Greek equivalents are analysed. Secondly, the author offers various examples of midrashic interpretations of Joseph stories from early Jewish Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek literature. It is obvious that Joseph is characterized as in the sense of being a chaste man. Joseph thus became the model of the ideal of chastity.
